Eight talk of Padmaloka's 2012 Winter Retreat. Each Buddha presents us with what can be a complete path or an aspect of our spiritual lives. Here we are invited into a realm of Beauty, the realm of Ratnasambhava, which can help motivate us to practice. The story of the Buddha's half brother, Nanda, helps illustrate how we can use more immediate desires as motivators on the path. We can shift from appropriation to appreciation.
